The Coalition for a New Dallas launched more than two years ago with the mission of revitalizing our city’s neighborhoods and restoring its urban core through public policies that improve mobility, generate economic development, and enhance the quality of life for residents.

We strongly believe in replacing highway I-345 with urban boulevards and mixed-income, mixed-used development. We adamantly oppose the construction of a high-speed toll road in the floodplain of the Trinity River. Fair Park must become a year-round economic engine for the surrounding neighborhoods and city at-large. And DART, the longest and least efficient transit system in the country, needs to be overhauled so that ridership and the bus system are prioritized over coverage and sprawling rail lines.

We’ve been fortunate to have effective champions at City Hall and look forward to expanding that support after this year’s city council election cycle. Below are the Coalition’s endorsements for 2017:

District 1: Scott Griggs
